Italy Travels

Baia di Ieranto

baia-di-ieranto-006 Baia di Ieranto, one of the most amazing and beautiful bay I discovered last time I was in Italy, was a place I wanted to take my sister and her boyfriend to.

terminiSince it was a holiday and there were no buses going to Nerano (closest point to hike to Baia di Ieranto), sweetest Dorina offered us a ride to Termini. From Termini we had this breathtaking view over the island Capri

    Are those lemons or are they cedra? We had cedra in Sicily – take a thin layer of skin off (can be candied) and cut the rest including what you think is thick pith into slices (remove any seeds), season with olive oil, a little balsamic, salt and pepper and chill for a summer salad – delicious!!!

    It was our tour guide – a Sicilian – that fixed it for us when two tour members brought it back from the market. I wish I could get them here in the Seattle area – think I saw them once a long time ago. Nothing like fixing a recipe at home from a trip to bring back memories. I make socca now regularly – a must when we open a bottle of rose wine.
